Greetings Seibertronians! Welcome to another look at the latest rumours floating around about the cinematic version of our favorite franchise.

Let's start off with facts:

These are not new but help keep things grounded.

Fact 1# Steven Caple Jr (Creed II) is the director.
Fact 2# Joby Harold (also working on the Disney+ Initiative Wan Kenobi show) is handling script duties.
Fact 3# the movie is set for release in 2022. This could easily change but that is what they are saying at the moment.

Now, for the rumours, and as always, assume false till proven true.

According to speculation website The Illuminerdi, the next Transformers movie has gained the working title of...Beast Alliance (this is likely to change, if true of course).

Transformers News: New Live Action Transformers 2022 Movie Rumours

Now while you take that it, let's discuss other things mentioned in the article:

Transformers: Beast Alliance takes place in the Bumblebee timeline and will be set in the 1990’s. The film will have the flavor of a heist film that will span from Brooklyn to South America.

Caple and the production are currently looking to cast either an African-American or a Latino actor in his early to mid-twenties for lead role, along with a female co-lead as old or even slightly older, who can pass for a native New Yorker. Unfortunately we were unable to get a double-confirmation of what Transformer robot characters are slated to appear in the upcoming film.


So first off, the idea is to leap a few years in time from the end of Travis Knight's Bumblebee film, presumably breaking it from connectivity with the Bay helmed films (as stands Bumblebee still works as a prequel to 2007's Transformers movie and supplementary material further reinforce it with Megatron being held by Sector 7).

Next, if true, we could be seeing Beast Wars characters a lot earlier then the proposed (but not officially picked up) Beast Wars movie.

There's no solid proof that this is the direction the live action movies will take. If it is true, however, then it will raise the questions of how the Beast Wars cast will fit into a narrative featuring the Autobots in the present day, and if they would use the cartoons scaling or the Kingdom scaling where the Maximals and Predacons seem to same sized as their predecessors.

Now, we turn over to you, the reader.
Do you think there's any truth here? Or do you think that the rumour is beryllium baloney? What path do you think Hasbro should take with the cinematic Autobots and Decepticons?

Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

This could go in two different ways: it will confuse the movie timeline more than TLK and BB did combined or the mention of the BB universe is part of the reporter going with the wishful thinking that Geewun fans and normies would have when they ride BB. Either way, I had a feeling this would be part of Hasbro going full-on Beast Wars yet having some traditional guys involved. So they pretty much merged the two film ideas together.

They have a history of doing this. A couple of the Bay films were originally multiple scripts that got merged together (AoE and TLK). Of course, those films felt overstuffed and were pretty bad. So this doesn't bode well.

I admit, as a big Beast Wars fan, the description doesn't really appeal to me. Making a Transformers heist movie set on Earth doesn't really make much sense; there's unlikely to be anything on Earth that they'd actually want, and that they couldn't just brute-force take with their, you know, giant robot bodies and superior weapons. Just seems like a silly concept. Doesn't particularly jive with the BW style either, which was characterized a lot by how isolated they were from everything. Setting it in 90's Earth kind of takes a lot of that away.

I'm not too nervous about the continuity.I assume the previous continuity will still count except where it diverges.

I'm afraid nothing in that article makes me want to see this. TLK was such a dumpster fire that I've lost most any interest in a live-action film anymore. Seriously, who goes to a Transformers movie to see the people? Do an animated movie with high-end CGI and stop cranking out garbage.

They've been pretty good regarding MCU and power rangers. However that doesn't necessarily mean this is on base mind.

Being that it's unlikely the authorities will allow movie theaters to be fully open and still crying COVID, I doubt we'll get anything that looks particularly good as they will likely consider this for streaming services.

I think it was strongly hinted but here's the odd thing, the next film will be the reboot technically anyway because Bumblebee still works as a prequel to the 07 film, thus if the next film contains the contradictions then that will be the reboot, the one that can't be folded into the other films...if that makes sense :-? I do wish it was a complete clean slate mind, with nothing from Bumblebee carrying forward but we'll see out it turns out anyway.

Ah, thanks for the clarification. :D

I'd also prefer a complete reboot, but we'll see how it plays out. I'm kinda surprised they haven't just declared Bumblebee as a reboot already.

No problem! :)

If they had said Bumblebee was a reboot then they would have had it a little easier but they kept a foot on both sides

Greetings Seibertronians! We've got some movie news here that seems to confirm some of what was rumoured earlier by The Illuminerdi.

The news concerns Production Weekly, an film industry magazine that lists all the productions that are looking for cast and crew, giving then the number to reach out to. As you would expect, the list of productions featured is long but one name stands out from the others.

Transformers Beast Alliance.

Image

This confirms that at least as far as the working title goes, Beast Alliance is the next Transformers movie. Being this early though, the name is not set in stone and may well end up changing before released to the general public.

This means what The Illuminerdi posted is right in one sense, meaning the other information they shared may equally be right on the money. Time will tell on that information mind.

The other thing to note that with its incursion here that Production will be starting to ramp up, so expect more news on this project soon.

Does the working name inspire you? Or does it fill you with dread at what Paramount and Hasbro are cooking up?

Shout out in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

I imagine that will be like the early Beast Wars toy bios,where they mention the conflict happening on modern day Earth.Between this,Cyberverse and WFC Kingdom,it seens Hasbro is making a move towards brand sinergy.

Considering that we heard both a Bumblebee sequel and Beast Wars movie were being considered, it seems like they might have been TLK’d and all smashed into one movie. That didn’t work out for TLK, but I guess we’ll see how this pans out.

I wouldn’t say I’m super excited for it, but I’ll definitely watch it. If it’s bad, oh well, I’ll still have a bunch of great Transformers movies to rewatch!

It looks like its going back to a serial kind of show, which h is good. Hopefully it can be more light hearted then Discovery and Picard.

That's the idea, yes. "Hopeful optimism and episodic storytelling, but with ongoing character development" were the big points of the series' announcement. :D

So I guess we'll be seeing beasts before a dedicated beast movie? From Hasbro's perspective that would make a lot of sense, since the beast era is still relatively unproven with modern audiences. That's why the rumor a little while ago of a planned beast trilogy didn't seem believable to me, there's no way they would take that much risk with the beasts at this point. Mixing the beasts in with something more familiar could allow them to test the waters, but it could also lead to some... interesting results.

On a side note, I wonder if "Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow" is the planned Edge of Tomorrow sequel?

When you think about it, every TF movie so far has had at least one beast Transformers it, already.

Strange New Worlds is a spinoff of Discovery, picking up where Pike's crew left off at the end of Discovery Season 2, focusing on the Enterprise during that point in time after Discovery left for the far future.

Hey, fellow Transformers fans! Today we bring you casting news of the next live-action movie in the franchise, which is due out in just over a year. Deadline, a movie news website, is reporting that actress Dominique Fishback is in final negotiations to star next to Anthony Ramos in the next Transformers movie.

Ms. Fishback has been in a number of television shows and movies, the most recent of which is Judas and the Black Messiah, for which she was nominated for a BAFTA (British Oscar equivalent) for Best Supporting Actress. This will not be the first pairing for Ms. Fishback and Mr. Ramos, however- the two have apparently known each other for years, having worked on a play in college together.

So have you seen Dominique Fishback on the big or small screen(s)? Excited about seeing the next movie come together? Let us know what you think below, and stay tuned to Seibertron for the latest Transformers news!

Considering that the release date is (as of now) still 13 months away, this isn't out of the ordinary. The next Doctor Strange movie will have had around 14 months total from the time they started shooting until it's released.
